Cruise of a lifetime

Patricia June Hughes 21 June 1946 ~ 14 July 2021
Pat left us with a smile on her face and hope in her heart

Welcome to her story as with your help, we follow her around the oceans of the world on her cruise of a lifetime.

Hello and thank you if you found the ball washed up on a beach, have already thrown it back in the sea, or plan to do so. Please share your part of the story by adding a comment.

Pat's passions were cruising, crafting and chatting and the great thing is that in her later years, she was able to combine all three as a craft instructor on board many cruise ships sailing around the world, she had a wonderful time! It was her intention to carry on cruising in 2021 but sadly, she passed away in July. “Cruise of a lifetime” is our way of giving her the send-off we think she would have appreciated.

The ball is made of teak and was sourced and carved in Bali Indonesia, it should last a long time in the water but may split if taken out and left to dry, so please throw it back in. Pat was very sociable, so if you still have the ball, raise a glass, wish her Bon Voyage and the next time you visit the beach, throw it back in the ocean when the tide is going out.

Most importantly, please add your part of the story, let us know where and when you found the ball, your comments and any photos you may wish to post.

You were very lucky to find the ball, the odds of it happening must be millions to one, we hope good fortune keeps coming your way.
Don’t forget to re-visit this page occasionally to see where time and tide have taken the ball and who else has been lucky to find it.

Thank you
